Digital Humanities Initiative

The CUNY Digital Humanities Initiative (CUNY DHI), launched in Fall 2010, aims to build connections and community among those at CUNY who are applying digital technologies to scholarship and pedagogy in the humanities. All are welcome: faculty, students, and technologists, experienced practitioners and beginning DHers, enthusiasts and skeptics.

We meet regularly on- and offline to explore key topics in the Digital Humanities, and share our work, questions, and concerns. See our blog for more information on upcoming events (it’s also where we present our group’s work to a wider audience). Help edit the CUNY Digital Humanities Resource Guide, our first group project. And, of course, join the conversation on the Forum.

    What: 6th Annual CUNY Digital Humanities Initiative Lightning Talks

    When: Wednesday, October 28, 2020

    Time: 6:30 to 8:00 PM

    Where: Zoom (link will be sent by email to registered participants)

    Lightning talks are informal, 3-minute / 3-slide presentations that offer a brief insight into your ongoing digital humanities project, research, or question. The audience includes a diverse community of engaged CUNY colleagues who are eager to hear about your project.

    We welcome first-time presenters, as well as those who have participated in past CUNY DHI Lightning Talks. This year, students, faculty, and staff presenters will join the dozens of scholars from previous DHI events in showcasing the diversity and innovation of CUNY’s growing digital humanities community. Learn more about some of these projects on the CUNY DHI website.

    Following presentations, participants and attendees will have an opportunity to socialize and ask questions in breakout groups organized thematically, such as: Publishing, Pedagogy, Mapping, Visualization, Archives, and more.

    This event is free and open to all CUNY students, faculty, and staff. Registration requires the use of your CUNY institution email account.

    Sign up to present using this form by Thursday, October 22.
